Just missed 63 yard into the wind at practice
Building chemistry with JJ Joe,Oscar and Thomas 

I've been hitting some bombs recently

Question on Charltons holding improvement: knowing where the balls going to be.... is big so he can just swing
He's been working with Charlton a lot this offseason- "We've taken huge strides"

On JJ vs Fletcher
     I eliminate any understanding of whose snapping, its me vs the ball
    JJ is a 13 year vet because he's amazing
    Fletcher was drafted because of his abilities
On Mental Aspects
    Been working with sports psychologist Dr. Perry 2x week
    Need to know how to quiet things in the mind
    If I can make my brain as strong as my body I can be successful
    Work on thinking on and off the field 
    Get your mind to quiet while still thinking
    Use Headspace app helps go to sleep
    Uses a bio feedback device while kicking
    Coach Rhule talks about Level 4 Mastery of things, Unconscious Competence

On Physical Aspects
    Working with Dr. Jordan Shallow for phys program and nutritionist Phil Smith to improve performance.

Slye points to his St. Jude baseball hat- his parents trusted the doctors to save his brothers life...those doctors played a role in  him getting vaccinated

On Statistic Goals
   He smiles, 100% field goals in anyway to best help the team

   Best for the team is he hit 100% of his PATs and no field goals attempts (all touchdowns)

He clearly is putting in the work to improve.

I love his range, but we can't settle for long and wrong.

Hopefully he'll be on the right side of game-deciding kicks this year.

Just watched the video.   Like hearing about the kind of work  he is putting in.  Seems like  a smart guy.  Also found it interesting  the  emphasis Rhule has on the mental side of things.  Hope Slye is very successful this year.

As I think about it, in terms of games where he appeared to be the deciding factor, he wasn't THAT bad.

He was  5 for 5 FGs in the Chargers game FTW.  We couldn't find the endzone with a map that game.

He missed the 65 yarder at the end of the NO game.

He just missed the 67 yarder against KC.

He missed the 54 yarder against the Vikes.

If he had made either of the 60+yarders we'd be celebrating him as hero, especially the KC one, which JUST missed.

If Teddy had gotten enough RZ/2 min/Endzone  practice and the play came early enough so he wasn't rushed 🙄 he would have hit wide open DJ in the back of the endzone.

The only one I can reasonably blame him for is the Vikes, but in my mind, that was more on Teddy.

I'm a firm believer in giving kickers a pass on those kind of kicks. That distance is just too tricky. 

As I think about it, I may be confusing 60+ yarders.  It may be the NO one that just missed.  Does anyone remember?

I hate it when teams pull off the throttle when they get inside the 35 late in a close game.  Sure, they may be in FG range, but 50+ yarders are not something I would want to put my hopes on.  Even when a FG will be the difference, the goal should be to break the 20.  When you break the 20, the goal should be to have the kicker lining up for a PAT, if there is time.  Don't be stupid, but don't quit, either.

A lot can go wrong with a kick.

Especially with such a shaky kicker like Slye.

Well if I remember right, we threw two checkdowns to CMC at the end of the KC game  for like no yards to set up the  67.

Somehow they knew Teddy would check down.

Not sure what else he can do to fix what wasn't working. Seems like he's hitting it from all angles.

Hope he hits it from all angles during the season.

His issues are between his ears. Sometimes that gets fixed, sometimes it doesn't.

Usually for kickers, once that goes(or if you just don't have it) there isn't usually a recovery. Like pro golfers that suddenly get the yips and never recover.

    • Was in a situation where I had to start him in my fantasy league last night (it was between him and a banged up Big Ben) Thankfully, it worked out well for me. 25 fantasy points thanks to those rushing TDs
    • In terms of the RB yup. Could try to use Tremble or just Darnold...he's not a small guy. Not as good as Cam but clearly a better option than our tiny ass RBs
    • I consider our defense to be trending in the elite direction.  So to compliment, I want to really see what the top teams have in the league.   The easy answer being Pat Mahomes or Tom Brady, but it's worth consideration. (I may miss some top guys, but you get the picture) The notable cores: Buffalo QB-Josh Allen *Tandem backfield WR-Stefon Diggs LT-Dion Dawkins C-Mitch Morse Cleveland QB-Baker Mayfield RB-Nick Chubb+Kareem Hunt *Tandem backfield WR-...questionable TE - Trio approach OL-Bitonio+Tretter+Conklin+Wills Chiefs QB-Pat Mahomes RB-Meh, might as well be committee WR-Hill TE-Kelce OL- Brown+Thuney+Humphrey TB QB-Brady RB-*Underperforming tandem backfield WR-Evans & Godwin TE-Gronk OL- Wirfs & Smith Arizona QB-Kyler Murray WR-The entire Group SF It's the OL, Deebo & Kittle DAL Overall balanced attack w/Dak, Elliott, Pollard, Lamb, & Cooper So.... My takeaway: You either need a top flight QB, a top flight OL, or a good enough QB-Receiving w/a few top OL that makes the package click.  Some of these have top RB talent, but are any really workhorses? Who has the overworked RBs? Us, Minny, Titans (good team, awful D), Cinci, Saints... Dallas has even adjusted and Pollard is getting more carries depending on the matchup.  In light of the CMC discussion, it is worth considering how we prioritize the build that continues (and looking quite good at the moment regardless of injuries) We're getting close.  And I don't think we're that off, and the next focus should be OL without question. Finally, after all these years.  OL OL OL OL OL
